HMS Inman (K471) was a Captain-class frigate of the Royal Navy in commission in World War II. Originally built as the United States Navy Evarts-class destroyer escort DE-526, she served in the Royal Navy from 1944 to 1945.


Construction and transfer

The ship was laid down as the unnamed US Navy destroyer escort DE-526 by the Boston Navy Yard in Boston, Massachusetts, on 25 September 1943 and launched on 2 November 1943. The United States transferred her to the United Kingdom under Lend-Lease on 13 January 1944; she was the last of the 78 destroyer escorts the United States transferred to the United Kingdom.

Service history

The ship was commissioned into service in the Royal Navy as HMS Inman (K571) under the command of Lieutenant Commander Philip Sydney Evans, RN, on 13 January 1944 simultaneously with her transfer. She served on patrol and escort duty for the remainder of World War II and was decommissioned in 1945 after the conclusion of the war.

The Royal Navy returned Inman to the US Navy on 1 March 1946.


The United States sold Inman in November 1946 to George H. Nutman, Inc., of Brooklyn, New York, for scrapping.
